ServiceNow Integration?

I was wondering if this tool integrates with ServiceNow, specifically if there is a way to export software and hardware inventory reports.

edit: I notice there's an "export as csv" option within PDQ Inventory. I also notice that ServiceNow supports "Retrieving data from a CSV formatted file". Has anyone tried this?

  • You can create an Auto Report that saves the report to a CSV file. https://documentation.pdq.com/PDQInventory/16.5.0.0/auto-reports.htm

  • ServiceNow has a lot of integration possibilities. Isn't there an API of PDQ that we can use?

  • Not really. The closest thing I can think of is Auto Reports. Technically you could read the database directly, but that can cause issues, so I don't recommend it.

  • Oke we can work with that.

    Is there also a possibility to integrate the other way? We have a service catalog in ServiceNow where people can request software. After a line manager approval we are now creating a manual task to deploy the software in PDQ. However of course it would create much value if we could automate this manual step.

  • I'm not familiar with what you can do from ServiceNow, but if it can run scripts you can call PDQDeploy.exe Deploy -Package <Package name> -Targets <Comma separated list of computer names>.

  • Ditto..... I am currently testing with the trial version of PDQ Inventory and deploy. Integration with ServiceNow would definitely be beneficial.
